their rights and liberties. the leader of the movement tells politico that mr. obama's re-election is what he called a cat liezing moment for his group's efforts to leave the united states. he insists "this is not a reaction to person but policy." and what they see is a federal government disconnected from its constituents. really? so far no response from the white house. even though the number of signatures far surpasses the 25,000 needed for a white house response. for his part, governor perry says he believes in the greatness of our union and nothing should be done to change it although he says he shares the frustrations a lot of americans have with the federal government. texas is america's second biggest state in both area and population. it was its own nation for ten years before joining the union in 1845. and texas isn't alone here either. a number of other states have also gathered more than 25,000 signatures on secession petitions including louisiana, north carolina and florida. here's the question. should texas be allowed to secede from the union? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile, post a

to have you. we're going to break in for president obama first news conference. >> i want to reiterate what i said on friday. right now our economy is still recovering from a very deep and damaging crisis our top priority has to be jobs and growth. we have to build on the progress that we have made. this nation succeeds when we have a growing thriving middle class. that is the idea at the core of the plan that i talked about on the campaign trail. rewarding manufacturers and small businesses to create jobs here. providing more americans with chances to learn the skills that businesses are looking for now. keeping this country at the forefront of research, technology clean energy. putting people back to work rebuilding roads and schools. we face a very clear deadline that requires us to make some big decisions on jobs taxes deficits by the end of the year. i believe both parties can work together to make these decisions in a balanced and responsible way. yesterday i met with labor and civic leaders for their input. today i am meeting with ceos of some of the largest companies. i will m

takers. you see obama learning how to deal with the caucus. let's extend the middle class tax cuts, right now, let's do it. he puts them in a bad position and making it look like, look, middle class, they are not giving you what you need. so learning how to work with them, learning that we have to have some compromise, i see some tea leaves that we may have a better next couple of years. we'll see. >> it will be interesting, if a deal is struck. i don't think it will nearly as good as for republicans as the deal that the president offered them. the grand deal that had been offered before. you know, in some ways i actually think the problem for republicans and for conservatives is that a lot of their ideas and principles have actually won. you know, since ronald reagan we no longer have 70% tax rates on the highest income earners. nobody is arguing for that. we're arguing to go back to 39.6%. on health care reform, the president's health care reform was basically a conservative idea put into the national spotlight by democrats and passed by democrats. education reform. even cap and trade i
and the power to convene. we need president obama to convene the right people together and set the agenda, which includes when the agenda is done. so the andrews air force base example. you don't amount to-month-olds finished. can we get that done? quite frankly, what american businesses are doing, they are planning a contingency to hold capital expenditures and lay people off in the potential that we will have a recession. in the bubble in washington, we determined how to keep our friends on the right or left by how we behave, the american people are the ones who suffer because we are the ones who laid them off. because we know how to respond to this situation. >> the president has to do that. the president has to meet with the leaders of the congress, collectively and individually. without the press necessarily being in the room. he heads to set the agenda. he needs to, you know, talk about what needs to be done. next year is going to be a window of opportunity which we won't have for three years after that. we could have tax reform and we could have energy legislation. but we haven't even had
, that barack obama tapped into in 2008. and remember, all these candidates were running with him this year. a lot of them synthesized their messages with them. sometimes a little bit to the right, sometimes a little bit to the left. but they are coming in as obama democrats into the senate and he's going to have some more forceful people in places like wisconsin, where you have a tammy baldwin replacing the much older -- her core is pretty liberal, but not a champion for liberal causes. maize hirono replacing daniel akaka in hawaii. warren replacing scott brown, what a change from a moderate republican to a very liberal, consumer-focused democrat. and murphy in connecticut replacing joe lieberman. very moderate guy, often voted with republicans. chris murphy, not so much. >> i was up with dukakis and he's working with a cause i help, helping people get legal protection for medical situations. and he was killed for being a liberal. i don't think he can run those kind of campaigns against democrats and say, oh, he's a liberal, that's it, end of argument, you know. >> isn't that part of it, c

this year, they say, launched from gaza into southern israel. last night president obama spoke on the phone with prime minister benjamin netanyahu acknowledging israel's right to defend itself but also urging him to not have civilian casualties. this youtube video showing an air strike yesterday killing the top military commander of hamas. it was part of a widespread campaign against targets that the israeli military says it will broaden in the coming days. this morning defense forces dropped leaflets over gaza warning residents to stay away from hamas operatives. on twitter, a clear message from israeli defense forces. quote, we recommend that no hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead. president obama also spoke last night with egypt president mohamed morsi about working together to preserve peace and security in the region. tension between israel and egypt's new islamist government has increased since the attacks with egypt recalling its ambassador to israel in protest. richard haass, also an emergency meeting of the u.n. sec

? president obama saying save the middle class. extend the bush tax cuts. rich edson at the white house right now. rich, one of the other things he said that the cleanup for superstorm sandy was fast and aggressive. i guess he hasn't been to breezy point or staten island recently because, man, it is still a mess there. >> he heads to new york to survey damage but i think what we got is an opening for compromise. i will take a look attacks reform and serious look at earn titlements. we don't have many details on that. we're at the stage of negotiations where neither side is providing many details just the willingness where you are willing to go on this? one of the questions people are asking, are you president obama, firm on commitment tax rates must go up on those earning $250,000 a year. that is the signal we had gotten from the white house press secretary. we had not got that from the president himself. he showed a little wiggle room there. take a listen. >> i am open to new ideas if republican counterparts or some democrats have a great idea for us to rise revenue, maintain progressivety,
to be objective, but it is not right. that is the real issue. why did the obama administration put an actor in a military role, then as the head of the agency evaluate the actions? i think we need a national debate about obama's troop escalation in afghanistan. it was a failure. obama is now committed to withdrawing in 2014. that is generally a good thing, but did we need the true escalation, how well did it work, should we do more? all of that cannot be addressed unless we have a national debate on the policy. am sure general petraeus' issues and other security issues were there, but that is really not the issue here. >> it is interesting. all of this takes place as roger bales is being questioned for the murder of 16 afghans. he is now at fort lewis-mcchord in washington state. >> that is another issue. i am from a military family. i really mind that the events in afghanistan are on stage. we know almost no media reporting on afghanistan. our guys are out there fighting, and if they get killed, it is on page 17. it is not right for a country to be at war unless it is committed to the war.

anything in washington without having some concerns. i believe the right thing for barack obama, and he has an incredible opportunity to lead if he wants to, he chose not to after being elected in 2008. solely focusing on obamacare. he should really take a team of rivals and a page booklet he did with hillary clinton and put john mccain as secretary of state. martha: what you think about that? >> i like john mccain very much. i think john kerry would be a choice before john mccain. but it would probably be a good idea to reach across the aisle. but you are trying to litigate the election. saying that obama did nothing but obamacare, which is not true. let's move forward and realize. unfortunately -- [talking over each other] [talking over each other] >> we have a debt ambassador in libya.
